Your putting it in a PCIe slot right? NOt a PCI slot.

And i was going to suggest manually disabling your onboard graphics but if you've dont that route, i would just make sure you have enough power for it. Make sure the card is seated properly.

IF you have another card lying around or a friend that has one you could try putting it in to rule out a fault PCIe slot.

So if you were to put the card in your board, and go to Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager, under your display, your new card isn't showing up?

Do you have another PCIe slot you can try to stick it in? Or another PCIe device you can stick in the slot to see if there is a faulty port?
